In this class we will take a look at the history of each state: Who settled it? Who were the Indigenous groups that live/d there? What European and American settlers moved there and why? When and how did it join the Union? What wars or conflicts were fought in that state? What important events happened there and who came from there? What is it most known for today? What makes it unique? Each week, you will receive lessons on 2-3 different states. These will be posted on the classroom page...
In this class, students will learn more than just the state population, motto, and flower. They will learn about the different groups of people that helped the state grow, how it participated in conflicts and battles, different landmarks, food, music, and culture.
I have been an educator on Outschool since February of 2018. I have my MBA and MHA, both of which have taught me the value of conducting research and asking questions. I have a passion for history, organization, reading, and learning. You can usually find me in the middle of 2-3 books or watching a documentary. I am also an Outschool ACE Educator, which means that I continually seek out ways to improve my teaching skills and knowledge, as well as the learner experience. Some of the seminars/courses that I have attended in the past are: Foundations for Teaching and Learning About Native Americans; The Presence and Absence of Asian America: What Truths Lie Beyond the Headlines; Using the “Diary of Anne Frank” to Amplify Students’ Voices; Painting a Just Picture – Art and Activism.
For each class/state, there will be 3-5 homework options given. These could be to watch a film, write a short 2-3 paragraph paper, worksheets, cook a local recipe, visit a site virtually, or create something. Learners will be able to choose the homework projects that they are interested in. All homework assignments will be due on Sunday of each week. For each state, learners will be identifying and tracking on a map. We will also be learning which U.S. President is born in each state, with optional homework on each.
Learners will be given a blank map to track each state, as well as an optional note sheet for facts they find interesting.
No live meetings, and an estimated 2 - 4 hours per week outside of class.
We will be discussing treatment of Native Americans and African Americans throughout American history. All discussions will be handled in an age appropriate manner. Learners will be using Youtube (private channel) links embedded in the classroom page to view lecture videos. Kahoot will also be used for review.
